On the 9th and 10th of January, the consortium comprised of 10 European partners of the ELSAH project met in Brussels for the kickoff meeting.
The ELSAH project aims to develop a flexible and integrated smart patch that would be a wearable sensor system. This system will continuously monitor health and well-being indicators and be fully self-sustained. It will integrate microneedle biosensors with a microchip, a printed battery and printed electronics, thereby enabling independent measurements and secure wireless data transmission to the userâ€™s mobile phone.
During the event, partners presented their future activity and objectives for the project. In this project, Leitat aims to develop new conductive inks for screen-printing onto polymer substrate, develop screen-printed interconnects and antennas and a develop a flexible eco-friendly printed battery.
